OK M MACHINE… OK. You got my attention.
“Metroplis Pt. II,” are you joking? I’ll believe it when Leonardo da Vinci makes a “Mona Lisa” part II, or Columbus discovers an America, part II. You can’t just slap a “II” onto perfection and call it a sequel – and everyone knows sequels suck unless they have a “revenge of” or “return of” somewhere in the title (or Vin Diesel is somehow involved – lehgo Fast 6).
Or can you? If I could sum up this album in one word it would be eclectic. The sounds that M Machine manages to incorporate in every track range from powerful, pumping electronic beats to beautiful symphonic highs, with explosive kicks, synths, and snares throughout.
If you’re not wise to the M yet – Ben, Eric, and Andy might be the coolest thing to come out of San Francisco since Rice-A-Roni. While the M may be fresh to the game as far as career length is concerned, they’ve seen outstanding success with their first album’s release through Skrillex‘s OWSLA and have played high profile festivals such as Electric Daisy Carnival, SXSW, Outside Lands, Nocturnal Wonderland, Electric Forest, Camp Bisco, and more. If those credentials don’t say enough for an immediate downloading spree – I don’t know what would.
The whole album will be available for purchase on February 19, so pre-order it on iTunes today.
